The Daily Mail reported Monday and CNN has confirmed Tuesday that transgender activists have convinced Procter & Gamble to remove the “Venus” symbol (this thing: ♀︎) from Always sanitary pads starting in 2020.

The Daily Mail reports:

Another activist, Ben Saunders – named young campaigner of the year by LGBT charity Stonewall in May after making a documentary about being transgender – contacted the sanitary pad makers in June with a similar complaint.

The Always marketing team replied with a comment that Saunders, 18, posted on Twitter, reading: ‘We are glad to inform you that as of December we will use a wrapper design without the feminine symbol.’

The message stated that sanitary towels with the new packaging would hit the stores by January 2020 and added: ‘We are absolutely grateful for having people like you voicing their opinions.’

Biological females aren’t all thrilled with Procter & Gamble’s decision:
